Reservations are appreciated. The free holiday dinners are an example of St. Barnabas’ commitment to its charitable mission of providing care to those in need regardless of their ability to pay.
Free Christmas dinners will also be offered on Thursday, Dec. 25, at all three St. Barnabas facilities listed above.
Since our founding in 1900 by Brother Gouverneur P. Hance, charitable contributions have been a critical cornerstone in our mission of providing comprehensive, compassionate care regardless of ability to pay.
Our residents, patients, and their family members often want to give something back in gratitude for the outstanding care currently being offered, or for quality care and personal attention received in the past. St. Barnabas Charities – the fundraising arm of St. Barnabas Health System and a 501 (c) 3 organization – offers a variety of convenient giving options.
